Montegrappa Limited Edition Chingis Khaan Fountain Pen
CHINGIS KHAAN (1162 - 1227)
It is this demand for tangible conduits to the past that inspired Montegrappa and Tavan Nuden to create Chingis Khaan. Dedicated to the legendary warrior and political reformer, Chingis Khaan (1162 - 1227), its use of colloquial spelling is a reminder to seek deeper truth. The founding of the Mongol Empire in 1206 is more than a historical factoid to memorise: it is an explanation of how our modern world came to be.
Appropriately for a figure name ‘Man of the Millennium’ by leading Western media, Chingis Khaan unites Italian craftsmanship with Mongolian artistry to majestic effect. Montegrappa’s mastery of lost wax casting has characterised many of its most coveted archives editions through the years, and it is in this tradition that Tavan Nuden’s chronicle of Mongolian history is brought to life.
The expressive micro-sculpting typical of this ancient jeweller’s art is at its most evocative on Chingis Khaan’s sterling-silver barrel, where vermeil relief depicts raiding Mongol horsemen soaring above landmarks from every corner of their vast empire: from Bianjing to Bukhara and beyond.
Bimetallic contrast also distinguishes a cap that presides over the panoramas beneath. The clip boasts a cameo of the Universal Ruler above his name, written in Mongol script. Polished relief on the cap reproduces his Imperial Seal - the only known copy of which resides in the Vatican’s Apostolic Archive.
Found on a demand sent by the emperor’s grandson, Güyük Khan, to Pope Innocent IV in 1246, the seal’s translation reveals a proclamation of unprecedented power:
“By the power of the eternal heaven. Order of Great Khan of the Mongol Empire.
The order shall be followed and feared by every citizen who should receive it.”
By the mid 14th century, the Mongol Empire’s authority had ebbed, but its legacy continues to underpin global principles of trade, justice and order. Chingis Khaan’s insistence on written laws enshrined unity and tolerance as preconditions for nationhood. On Chingis Khaan, his Law of the Eternal Blue Sky echoes through grip and filling segments lathed from sapphire-blue Montegrappite artisanal resin.
Limited to 99 fountain pens, this Private Edition embodies heaven and earth through Ongi - the ancient symbol etched into its two-tone 18K gold nib. Its duality is fundamental to a creation only made possible by the collaboration of two guardians of artisanal heritage from opposite ends of the world.
